What To Expect:
The Green Point, Brighton dive site is located on the Eastern side of Port Phillip.
This is a convenient place to dive where you can transit the point and back as shown. From the beach, head out west-south-west. Then follow the edge of the reef as you head north. If you venture over the reef, be aware that it can get quite shallow, so monitor your depth. It's easy for snorkellers to explore the top of the reef. Your air consumption will determine when you reach your turnaround point.
Green Point is a great site for beginners and night dive enthusiasts. It's so close to the city, thus very convenient for those living in Melbourne. Great for getting back in the water, a night dive after work, or just an excuse to get wet! The famous Brighton beach boxes are only a few hundred metres away around the point of land to the north.
Plenty of parking here, and it is also a short walk from the Brighton Beach Station. You may need to buy a parking ticket.
Melway: 76 C3
Walk south down the ramped path and enter the water from the beach south of the reef. The water is very shallow at first. Always take a dive float with dive flag!

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.
The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
